Why See The Addams Family?
As the musical begins, there are storm clouds gathering over the Addams Family home. Wednesday is falling in love, young Pugsley, jealous of his sister's attention, begs her to keep torturing him severely, while mother Morticia, fears being upstaged and discarded by her daughter's lurch into womanhood... like yesterday's roadkill.
But when outsiders come to dinner, the events of one night will change forever this famously macabre family - a family so very different from your own - or maybe not.
